Bowls In Focus : June July 2011
30 Bowls In Focus Bayside Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Will Murphy (Cheltenham) and Syd Cooper (Cheltenham and formerly life member of Beulah) who recently passed away. Geelong Retired builder Max Davies grins as he recounts how one of the benefits of leading a building project at a bowls club is the wealth of advice from the members. Max volunteered his time, tools and a lifetime of expertise to build a $40,000 deck overlooking the greens at Belmont Bowls Club. ‘It’s for the members and it’s some- thing I can do,’ the 10-year club member said, ‘others do a lot more in other ways.’ Max and his crew of assistants contrib- uted 1000 voluntary hours to the project, funded by the City of Greater Geelong. At the opening members saluted Max and his team, together with Gee- long councillor Bruce Harwood for his support of the club. Cr Harwood said the Reynolds Rd club, which has about 370 members, was one of the premier clubs in Geelong. ‘It gets back to the people of the club,’ Cr Harwood said, ‘that’s where the drive for these projects comes from.’ Sincere condolences to the family and friends of David Smith and Brian Coyle (Geelong) who recently passed away. Maroondah Four bowlers who are good mates but play in three different pennant teams have combined to win the 2011 Mitcham Classic Fours event recently. Garry Ball and his son Chris who play for Moonee Ponds joined with Dylan Fisher from Melbourne and Dane McKinnon of Wer- ribee to take the title and first prize in the $5500 tournament. Two teams from Mitcham made up the minor placings. George Dolan, Phil Haynes, Ron Short and Andrew Dalli were runners up, while Matt Handley, David Sharman, Russell Hall and Daryl White came third The 2011 Classic - proudly spon- sored by Eastside Mitsubishi and other local businesses Iris Financial Group and Mitcham News Agency - attracted a talented field of 24 teams from New Zealand, metropolitan Melbourne and interstate. This was the third year of the Mitcham Classic, which is an invitation- only event and has proved to be an out- standing success amongst both bowlers and spectators. The select field played a combination of disciplines over the two days with a total of 10 games - six games of fours, two games of pairs and two games of singles. The event brings a classic bowls competition of extremely high standard to the City of Whitehorse and gains recognition for the Mitcham club as a progressive, innovative sport- ing organisation. Metro North After enjoying a close win over MCC, Glenroy recently celebrated its Division 2 Saturday pennant flag by ‘shaving down’ for the Cancer Council of Victoria. While enjoying their well-earned refresh- ments, team members and several supporters had their head shaved, and in the process raised over $500 for cancer research.
